• Capel St Mary Skatepark
    This is important because there is a very little amount of public entertainment in the local area. Building a skatepark would bring new people into the village and would help the local stores by bringing in new customers. A skatepark provides endless hours of entertainment for all.

  • Pharmacie Café outdoor safe garden
    This is extremely important as we are in the middle of a pandemic and we would like customers to be able to use the café and be at a safe distance from each other. Using the garden and outside space will mean we can have a larger capacity and therefore have more opportunity to be a viable business.

  • Save Waterfront Tea Room’s Shepherds Hut
    It is a valuable business asset and I have used it to trade from selling ice creams, drinks and in the winter months waffles and crepes also since 2018. During the current pandemic it is providing my sole income. The Tea Room is closed due to logistical issues whereby it is not possible to trade safely due to government restrictions. If I am forced to remove the hut I will be forced out of business. It is simple as that! Thank you for signing.

It will be professionally designed and constructed by a company selected by the Goring Community Skateboard Project with design input from local skatepark users

  • Say No to mobile mast on Paxton Road
    We, the local residents, strongly object to such an installation being carried out at Paxton Road, Bromley. The proposed development causes numerous adverse effects on both the neighbourhood and the local residents. Plaistow Green in which the proposed development sits consists of many Edwardian and Victorian period feature properties and historical buildings such as St Mary's Church. The proposed development would not only create visual clutter, but also destroy the character, appearance, and heritage of the area, and reduce land and housing value permanently. Additionally, the position of this structure within one of the few areas of green public space, open and available for the community to enjoy, would be upsetting. If anything, the council should be proposing to plant more greenery to offset the carbon impact of heavy traffic in the area. Importantly, the location of this monopole is very close to residential properties, the nearest is less than 5 meters away according to the proposed site plan. The ES-UK publication 'Adverse Health Effects of Mobile Phone Masts and Planning Policy' advises a minimum 500-metre distance between a mobile mast station and a residential area in order to reduce the risk of adverse health on nearby residents. The report specifically highlights risks to those people sensitive to electromagnetic energy such as children. It should be noted that there is a nursery and a preschool located on College Road, both less than 100 metres from the site, and also a primary school approximately 200m from the proposed site. It is inappropriate to install such tall infrastructure, more than double the height of any of the trees or buildings shown in the plan, within a high-density residential area. Not only is it out of keeping with the surroundings but also creates a potential hazard as a distraction to drivers on a roundabout already known for several crashes. We urge Bromley Council to take on board the concerns of local residents and refuse this application outright. https://searchapplications.bromley.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=QEH3D1BTN3B00&activeTab=summary

  • Save the Trees of Little Stoke
    Our Trees and hedgerows are precious to us, they are characteristic of the area having been here for a very long time. Since Covid-19 hit there is even less need for a new bus, our roads In the stokes and surrounding areas at rush hour are practically empty and the busses that do run have even less passengers than before. Our hedgerows thrive with small birds and other wildlife. Where will they go? If the trees and hedges are removed there will be nowhere. This is not the behaviour we would expect of a local authority in an area so caring about its wildlife and trees. We question whether there’s even a need for this bus, the COVID-19 crisis is predicted to last years not months, what a huge waste of local council tax payer’s money. Surely our money could be better spent helping small businesses and families rebuild and adjust to our new post lockdown normal.

  • No fun for Nature - Save Swanscombe Marshes
    The Swanscombe Peninsula is home to a remarkable mix of habitat of high value to wildlife – these include grasslands, coastal habitats, brownfield features, scrub and intricate wetlands. Known as Swanscombe Marshes, this urban wilderness is home to thousands of species, including over 250 invertebrate species which are rare or under threat. As well as abundant bees, butterflies and beetles, Swanscombe Marshes is one of just two places in the UK where you can find the Critically Endangered Distinguished jumping spider (Attulus distinguendus). It is home to Nightingales, Cuckoos, Marsh harriers and a thriving population of Common lizards, thanks to its array of rich habitats. Swanscombe Marshes is not just important for wildlife. The site has been enjoyed by local people for years for walking, bird watching, angling and escaping the hustle and bustle of North Kent. But all of this is now threatened by the proposed London Resort theme park. Hyped as the ‘UK’s Disneyland’, much of the unique habitat of Swanscombe Marshes would be destroyed and concreted. The wildlife riches of the site simply will not survive this development. At a time when the value of wildlife and open spaces is being appreciated more than ever and amid a biodiversity crisis, we urge the Secretary of State to reject this unnecessary and ill thought out application. Please sign our petition to save this unique site, let’s save Swanscombe Marshes! For more information please visit our website https://www.buglife.org.uk/campaigns/save-swanscombe-marshes/.

  • Support Manor Farm Dog & Sports Complex
    For over 6 years now we as a family have taken pride in caring for the Manor Farm 22 acre site. When we moved in it was heading into ruins with vandalism and lack of care. My family and I were welcomed by the local residents and community and we felt obligated to do what we can to make this site enjoyable to all. In doing so we have been pleased to offer our dog day care and dog homeboarding service since 2014 along side all of the other benefits to the site. Many of you may have heard of our dog cafe that opened 3 years ago in Wythenshawe called "The Beach Dog Cafe". We have now moved our cafe to this muched loved site. In order to do this planning permission is required. And since our overall concept is unique some of our other services are being reviewed. So we need your help.  We know our ambitions are big for our Manor Farm site and the service we offer and we are looking for support to help bolster our application. Our 22 acre site will be more than a café and day care, it will be a focal point for the community - combining sports, outdoor recreation, a dog café, as well as a rewarding dog day care and dog home boarding service.  And if that wasn’t enough, we will have indoor space for small gatherings, exercise and fitness, as well as workshops and space for community organisations.  The Manor Farm site located in Timperley has lacked a  purpose for many years now but we feel combining these interests will offer fun, exercise, mental wellbeing along with community spirit for all to enjoy.   Please support us by signing our petition to grant planning permission to open our doors. Many thanks From Tony, Tania & all of our staff

  • Stop Costa Coffee from hurting Bella's
    Costa Coffee has applied to set up a cafe in the Eastbourne railway station, right next door to Bella's Cafe, a local business. This move threatens the very existence of Bella's, a cafe that has survived rail strikes, austerity, a COVID19 lock-down and is now faced with overwhelming opposition. Costa has already three coffee bars in Eastbourne and one of them is directly across the road from the station! Bella's is well liked in the community and has won awards for its service. It has endured a terrible business climate to serve its customers to a high standard. They are a local employer and have even provided discounts for NHS front-line staff. Costa's move, if it goes ahead, will be seen as commercial predation and domination where a large corporation rides roughshod over a local business. We therefore ask you not to go ahead with the establishment of a coffee bar in the Eastbourne Railway Terminus.

  • No Access Road on Castle Street Bodmin
    There is a perfectly good access road from Callywith College that was built for the explicit purpose of providing access to this new development. This road currently sits unused. The proposed access road from Castle Street however, will result in demolition of an existing home, currently housing a young family of 5 with disabled children. It will blight a neighbourhood of vulnerable residents with significantly increased traffic. And will cause avoidable and unnecessary environmental damage through the destruction of a hedge row, and the tearing down of oak trees.

  • Save our motorcycle/Scooter parking at The Groves.
    Motorcycles and scooters have parked at the Groves since the 1950’s. It has become a tradition enjoyed by Cestrians and tourists alike. Many of these riders are involved in local charities including the North West Air Ambulance, Easter egg runs to the Countess hospital and Teenage Cancer trust and use the river site to meet, network and organise events. Over the years they have raised thousands of pounds and delivered vast amounts of Easter eggs and toys to sick children locally. Without this meeting place not only will the Groves lose a part of its heritage but there will be nowhere in the immediate area for bikes to park in any numbers making it very difficult to plan future events. These riders have supported local charities for years and now ask for your support to continue.
